CGPR is fast, nimble and responsive. They are a true business partner always thinking about the big picture beyond product. Their deep knowledge of the outdoor industry combined with their expertise of fashion and consumer trends has been a solid asset. Their creativity and service minded approach makes them a pleasure to work with and I look forward to where we might go next.

- Niclas Bornling, GM North America and Head of Global Brand, Houdini Sportswear

LOWA works with CGPR because they help us elevate the brand and present it to a broader audience than our traditional outdoor consumer. We get more eyes on our product thru their PR efforts than we normally would. Their professionalism and follow-up with both ourselves and writers is superb.

- Peter Sachs, General Manager, LOWA

CGPR is a great partner.  They are very strategic, always thinking about the long game and their breadth of experience makes them a solid partner.They understand how to tell brand stories and to leverage a challenging news cycle.

They’re responsive and supportive, and the numbers don’t lie.  In our first year of working together KEEN’s earned media audience grew by 6,000%. The magic about this is that Keen appeared in national mainstream consumer and media outlets far beyond outdoor endemics introducing more consumers to the brand.

- Erik Burbank, Former Brand Officer, Keen Footwear

Alef Aeronautics chose CGPR as a strategic partner for thought leadership and media relations and they did not disappoint. The results beat expectations with 4.02 billion UMV reach. We saw important new coverage in key outlets such as Thomson Reuters, CNET, Forbes and BBC, in addition to a great segment on the NBC Affiliate KNTV. James, Kelly, Brooke and Chris did a great job on generating interest in US and Europe and China and handling the flood of post-event media requests. Their personal attention to each media outlet, experience in public relations, and attention to detail were a critical piece to our success.

@houdinisportswear CEO Eva Karlsson recently visited NYC to meet with @wwd`s Kaley Roshtish and Jean Palmieri and Jessica Binns of @sourcingjournal sharing info about what`s next and talking about the Houdini Design checklist. Thank you Kaley, Jean and Jessica for taking the time to meet with us. ...

"During my time here I learned so much about PR and International business. Working in a country away from my home was a surreal experience; I’m very lucky to have had this opportunity. I always had plans to travel out of Ireland and work overseas once I graduated from college. I feel my time at CGPR was the best possible step I could’ve taken to fulfill that dream. Working with the team was a blast -- when working with a small group it is a lot easier to receive feedback and grow from it. Learning about the world of PR and the way business works in the US was truly a pleasure and I couldn’t have done it with a better group of people, thank you for having me.”
We will miss Jack but look forward to his bright future.

"This internship experience provided daily opportunities to learn more about the world of PR. The team was supportive of my skills and allowed me to take the lead on agency and client projects regularly. I will be sad to leave, but certainly excited for future opportunities as I prepare to graduate from @gordoncollege. I have a new appreciation for all of the hard work that occurs behind the scenes of successful brands. Thank you CGPR!"

We will miss Lilli Johnson but look forward to her bright future.

Today our intern, Lilli Johnson, was inducted into the National Communication Association`s official honor society recognizing her distinguished achievements while attending @gordoncollege. Great work Lilli and congratulations to all the students entering this prestigious group.

Happy National Park Week from one of our favorite spots in Marblehead. Get outside and enjoy the sunshine today. ☀️

While April is Earth Month, we need to think about protecting the planet all the time. In addition to brands, fashion weeks are in need of a sustainability makeover to decrease the devastating impacts the industry has on our planet. In her most recent blog, Lilli reveals what is happening in the fashion community, and while there are companies that are making progress, the iconic fashion events are falling behind.

Adidas is stuck between a rock and…a pair of shoes. Although the brand ended its partnership with Kanye West last October, $1.3 billion dollars worth of YEEZY sneakers remain in warehouses across the globe. Our founder Chris Goddard offers her take in favor of a solution -- work with a global organization that has a legitimate history of providing shoes to those truly in need but rather than just providing the shoes as a donation, Adidas should provide the staff onsite to assist with the distribution around the globe for as long as it takes.

One of the best parts of working with great clients is the people we meet and places we see. Last week, while in Sydney, in addition to saying hello at their offices, Woolmark arranged for CGPR to attend a wool auction -- interesting to see the inner workings for the wool community. Thank you Laura Armstrong, Anna McLeod, Craig Hains and Scott Carmody for being great hosts. ...

Congratulations to client @moosejawmadness for the successful launch of the Comfort Camping Collection and Coolers. Continuing their mission to make the outdoors accessible for all, both collections have premium products that are affordable. From soft sided to hard sided coolers, sleeping bags, pads, and tents-something for every outdoor adventure. ...

Happy National Walking the Dog day from CGPR! We love our four legged friends and with so many beautiful trails and walking spots along the ocean, we have lots of options. ...
